Yes, I realize now that there was dirt on the sensor... But then again, you try spotting specks of dust on the review display output in 22mph winds... lol.



I'll post more as a process them.

Here's another of the shots from the state park.... this one tree was just holding onto the last of its color and stood out amongst the rest.

Thanks, that's the Roman aqueduct in Segovia, Spain.

Thanks Jean. I wish I'd done a pano of that evening sky - it was beautiful.

One thing I've noticed about the older "M" lenses....

After going back and reviewing many of the photos posted here.... one thing that stands out very much, is the.... um.... I'm not exactly sure what to call it, but it's the edge sharpness in the photos. The delineation from one element in the photo to another. It seems to be very distinct and adds greatly to the overall feeling of sharpness. This isn't always the case with many other lenses. I have several Pentax "M" lenses and I've noticed this a great deal, especially in my SMC Pentax-M, 80-200mm, but not limited to it alone. Such nice lenses, these Pentax Ms.... not a bad one in the lot! And, they can be had for such a nominal cost. I'm not put off at all because they are manual.... not in the least!

I'm with you there. I sometimes struggle to get a good focus, but when I do, the old M lenses are fantastic!

Right! The M's offer great IQ for the money, if you don't mind a bit of inconvenience. Here's one with the M28/3.5, xposted to the b/w thread:

Yep.... your photo shows exactly what I'm talking about. The sharpness is.... "different"... than the sharpness of other lenses. I don't know how to explain it, but you guys obviously know what I mean. I suppose it's like the congressman said when trying to describe pornography..... "I don't know how to define it, but I know it when I see it!" Last week, I took some test shots with my SMC Pentax-M, 80-200mm and realized that this was one aspect of these lenses I had sadly overlooked. I'll definitely be using them more now, especially since I just bought a new K-50!
